'FILTHY RICH' AT FOX
TOPLINED BY KIM CATTRALL
More soapy drama is coming from Fox and The Help writer and director Tate Taylor whose new pilot FILTHY RICH will be led by Kim Cattrall. It
is a larger than life Southern gothic dramedy that revolves around two strong, sharp women, Margaret Monroe (Cattrall) and and Ginger Sweet, who will go to any length to protect their loved ones and get their due. When the wealthy CEO of the world’s largest Christian network dies in a plane crash, his wife and adult children are stunned to discover he has grown, illegitimate kids who are also in his will. When the steel azalea matriarch of the family tries to pay them to go away, these newly legitimized heirs have very different ideas and insist on not only staying in town but becoming part of the family empire.

the Senior VP of Operations at the conservative Christian Sunshine
Network, which was created by his powerhouse parents. Benjamin Levy
